Amazing work from the guys at Dakine Landscape Contractors. They fully understood what we wanted to achieve and were able to bring our project to life in such a short time

Jane Donnelly

These guys were brilliant. They cleaned up after themselves, arrived on time every day and were very polite. Really happy with the work we've had done. Thanks

After contacting multiple landscaping companies and not receiving any callbacks my husband and I came across Dakine on Facebook. They were able to get us on schedule for an estimate and then scheduled to do work. Our front yard had been destroyed by the previous owner but Dakine took our requests and gave us our dream front yard. We will be working with them again for the back yard.

We would like to thank Donovan, Dave, and the entire crew of Dakine Landscape Contractors. They were simply wonderful, professional, courteous, hardworking, and followed through on everything they promised. They actually went above and beyond our expectations by far!

Hans & Leslie Lagasse

It was less than two weeks from the time I signed the quote to the time my concrete patio was finished. Everyone involved was professional, and the work done looks fantastic. Highly recommended.

Jessica Soucy

Dakine took our non-existent yard to a gorgeous and homey landscape. I was so impressed straight out the gate with the walkthrough and design - somehow he could see my vision and bring it to life! We were also very happy with the fair pricing. When our week finally came, the team was quick and extremely professional. My husband and I are blown away by our yard!

This review is long overdue as I owe a HUGE thank you Robert Scarola and his team at Dakine!! I couldn't be happier with the end results!! The communication from Robert was above and beyond! I was included/involved in every aspect and the results were absolutely amazing! I have already begun referring friends & neighbors to Dakine and I will continue to use them for other projects in the future!

Adrian Adame

Dakine did an awesome job with our backyard landscaping! Robert was prompt in getting to me to set up an estimate. Super professional and efficient. I liked that Robert provided a draw up and itemized details in our quote. He was willing to work with us to make sure we got everything that we wanted. The workers were on time and professional when they showed up to work. Always friendly and happy to answer any questions that we had. We had rocks, dry river bed, concrete walkway and firepit area installed, and plants. I would definitely use Dakine for any future projects!

I contacted Dakine with a front and rear landscaping project for my new build. They were able to work with a specific look that I wanted and got me in earlier than expected! Their team is phenomenal and the work is fast and looks extremely high end. I even added in some concrete work the day of and they got it in and taken care of without delays. Robert is extremely responsive and will make sure your requests are taken care of. Will definitely be using them for more landscaping projects. Robert and Donovan will definitely get you taken care of!
